BE HAPPY BECAUSE IT IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH! Health and Economy: Lessons from a pandemic

One of the vital characteristics of the CIBP LINK training programme is to think out of the box and to see the world through fresh eyes, other than the banking scope.

On this occasion, we want to take a step back and think about the value of Love of Life versus the value of the Fear of Death.

The job of a banker requires to understand in order to try to predict because investing is knowing how to plan for the future and to take into account the social, moral and political context in which the economy and finance operate.

This year of pandemic invites us to think about the sanitary and political conditions in which our prosperity is developing.

The question remains “How to create the connection between Love, Generosity, Solidarity, Communion, four values / ways of living together in a disruptive world“?

Guest speaker: André Comte SponvilleFrench Humanist philosopher and writer

Most famous book is Petit traité des grandes vertus (Small Treaty of Great Virtues), published in January 1995.

TALENT MANAGEMENT AND SUCCESSION PLANNING

The future of a business can be scary, even when that business is successful. Sometimes, organizations that are doing well feel an even more overwhelming pressure to get the right plan in place and avoid any succession problems.
Talent development and succession planning are two of the most critical human resource management processes within an organization.
Talent development describes all process and programs that an organization utilizes to assess and develop talent. Succession planning is the process for reviewing key roles and determining the readiness levels of potential internal (and external!) candidates to fill these roles. It is an important process that is a key link between talent development and talent acquisition/recruiting.

SUSTAINABILITY IN THE BANKING SECTOR: INSIGHTS FROM DZ BANK AG

Climate change and sustainability more broadly, have become global mega-trends, a notion even true for the financial world. 

However, if we want to align banking practices with the Sustainable Development Goals and/or the Paris Agreement, sustainability aspects need to be implemented into internal processes, too.

How do banks integrate and coordinate efforts to deliver on sustainability? What are common challenges they face? How do they overcome them?

This talk will explore these questions by looking at the way in which the DZ BANK is currently developing its sustainability agenda, reflecting – from a practitioner’s perspective – on the regulatory developments at the EU level, global sustainability-reporting initiatives and ESG ratings.

PSD2: THE EUROPEAN OPEN BANKING EXPERIENCE

As the PSD2 (Revised Payment Service Directive) becomes implemented, banks’ monopoly on their customer’s account information and payment services is about to disappear. In short, PSD2 enables bank customers, both consumers and businesses, to use third-party providers to manage their finances.

While such a Directive is already a reality in Europe, there are other regions in the world, like in Latin America, that are likely to follow with regulations largely inspired in the PSD2.

The Spark covered the implication of such a Directive in Europe and how Coop Banks have been preparing for its implementation.

1. How was the process of preparing for PSD2 implementation

2. What are the implication in data protection

3. How PSD2 affects payment services providers
